Wow! Gunners fans stunned after legendary manager makes amazing Arsenal claim

Arsene Wenger admits Arsenal ‘lost their soul’ when they left Highbury in order to move to the Emirates.

The Frenchman spent 22 years In north London and helped establish the Gunners as one of the dominant forces in English football.

He is arguably one of the greatest managers to ever grace the game and helped the club to so much silverware, while also making the club financially stable.

In 2006, the club moved to the 60,000-seater stadium in a bid to compete with the biggest clubs in Europe.

But success has not followed and right now it seems that the club are unwilling to spend serious money in order to compete with the big boys across Europe.

And Wenger believes the lack of atmosphere in the new ground is an attributing factor.

“I moved from Highbury, which was similar to Anfield, but there was a soul in the stadium,” Wenger told beIN Sport.

“We built a new stadium but we never found our soul – we left our soul at Highbury.

“We could never recreate it for security reasons. The distance from the pitch to the stand had to be bigger as we needed ambulances to come in.

“The inclination of the stands had to be smaller all those things together that we didn’t find to recreate the atmosphere.”

Look, there are so many reasons why the Arsenal are struggling to get back to their very best and winning trophies, but the main reason is because they are lacking in world class ability.

It is a massive claim from Wenger to make, but the Gunners had to move grounds in order to progress and even though they have failed to achieve the dream of being the best side in Europe, they are not too far away from getting back to the top.
